Put DOWN the hook, Sue

I admit I've been obsessed lately;
 Whenever we go on a road trip I crochet nonstop. 

I was annoyed the other day in a waiting room when an, ahem, older gentleman looked at me and loudly asked his wife, "What's she doing?". The wife said, "Knitting or crocheting, I don't know." He looked again, sourly, at me and said "Some people just can't sit still." Exactly right! And look what I've been working on! My bugs!!! I'm so happy, I have a little butterfly I think I'll include in this pattern set, too. You'll notice one of the bees has flatter wings which lay flat....there's another option in which the wings sit up and attach to the back (see the bee in the center of the picture. And, of course a ladybug (it still needs some embroidery, something seems to be missing. Hah!) 

Anyhoo, this pattern set, along with the Flower Power flowers which match the bugs, will be put together into a pattern and put on my etsy store in the next couple of days. Hopefully I'll put another free pattern on this blog at the same time. 

In the meantime, check out my store at  and my treasury which includes almost all of my Small Project patterns at

Baby Bowler Hat with Flowers, not done yet. Boo Hoo!

I had to show you my baby bowler hat. I can't seem to finish the pattern! There's something wrong, just don't know what it is. I'll figure it out, let me know your ideas if you like. The best thing about the pattern is the little flower pattern that comes with it; every hat needs funky flowers to sew on, and these are simple and jazzy. Nice and tight, lots of edgings with contrast, whew.
Have a wonderful week of fun with crochet AND with real life, ha!

5 for $15 sale  This is the sale of the week...just in case you want to mix and match my patterns. The Treasury (the link is at the bottom of this post) is a better deal if you want absolutely everything. Get all loaded up with crochet projects for the rest of summer vacations!! I can't think of anything better than a week on the beach with my crochet projects next to me and the surf in front of me. Ahhhhhhhh! Wish I were there.
